Probable Playing XI:
Chadwick Walton has been playing some good cricket for the Jamaica Tallawahs in the past few games and has scored 230 runs in 9 matches at a strike-rate of 122. Skipper Chris Gayle can be the most dangerous batsman when he gets going and the Tallawahs will hope that he finds his form soon.

Andre Russell went for plenty against the Zouks in his previous match, conceding 64 runs in his 4 overs without picking up a single wicket. Shakib Al Hasan bowled economically, as he usually does, conceding 25 runs in his 4 overs and picking up the wicket of Johnson Charles in the process.
Kesrick Williams has picked up 11 wickets in 9 matches and could prove to be a vital player against the Zouks. Imad Wasim has been bowling well for the Tallawahs in this season, picking up 7 wickets in 8 matches.
